Two Indiana students earn Wade Steffey Memorial Scholarship

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Two students from Indiana have been selected as recipients of the Wade Steffey Memorial Scholarship. Trent Huckstep of Carmel and Kelli Chupp of Osceola are set to enter Purdue University in the fall. The scholarship provides $2,000 for each of the students for the 2009-10 academic year.

The Wade Steffey Memorial Fund was created by Purdue to honor Wade Steffey, who died Jan. 13, 2007, when he entered an electrical vault in the basement of Owen Hall, a Purdue student residence building. Steffey was a National Merit Scholar and Eagle Scout who was majoring in aviation technology at Purdue.

The Wade Steffey Memorial Fund was created by Purdue to honor Wade Steffey, who died Jan. 13, 2007, when he entered an electrical vault in the basement of Owen Hall, a Purdue student residence building. His body was found March 19, 2007, after extensive searches by police agencies, university staff and hundreds of volunteers. Steffey, from Bloomington, Ind., was a National Merit Scholar and Eagle Scout who was majoring in aviation technology at Purdue.

“I really hope that Wade is remembered as a good friend to all kinds of people and that he built bridges between groups and brought people together,” said Dale Steffey, Wade’s father. “He was smart, kind and honest. We hope that this scholarship honors Wade and that it helps the university remember the extraordinary coming together that occurred when Wade was missing.”

While at Purdue, Huckstep plans to major in pharmacy, and Chupp plans to major in science.

Huckstep and Chupp were selected based on their academic excellence, school and community involvement, and financial need.

Students eligible for the scholarship must be from Indiana and plan to attend Purdue.
